For Colored Girls


Tyler Perry has a movie coming out on November 5th of this year. The movie is a silver screen adaptation of the play by Ntozake Shange entitled For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf has been performed both Off-Broadway & on Broadway. It is based off of 20 poems and performed by a main cast of 6 female characters who each is represented by her own color (Lady in Yellow, Lady in Purple, Lady in Blue, Lady in Red, Lady in Green, & Lady in Orange). Each woman has her own personal story that she portrays in the play dealing with topics ranging from love & abandonment to domestic violence & rape. What makes me so excited about this movie is the luminary cast of women who will be acting in the movie: Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Whoopi Goldberg, Janet Jackson, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Jill Scott, Jurnee Smollett, Kerry Washington, Tessa Thompson, Macy Gray, Omari Hardwick, & Thandie Newton. With such an inspired story line and so many greatly talented actresses, this movie is sure to be worth both your & my time.

  11. I'm so excited for this movie, the cast is crazy. Unfortunately I go to school in a small town that certainly will NOT be getting this movie so I will have to get access to it somewhere else.

  12. Although very happy for Tyler Perry, I never run out to go see his work. However, as soon as I saw the trailer to this movie, I felt the exception. Funny my soulmatesista called me 10 mins. after I viewed the trailer;she also was viewing it around the same time. "Girl, I will drive up from Atlanta to see this movie with you. I can't go see it with no one else. This is a sister movie." LOL. I love her. So, looking forward to it.

  13. @Roya, my town is pretty small too, hopefully this movie will be in the local theater but if not i have a couple other ones nearby that i will have to drive to so i feel your pain girl!

    @Smell Goods Lady, this DEFINITELY will be a sister movie, I can't wait to see it with my group of girlfriends, it will definitely be a night to remember :)

  14. This movie is unlikley to be showing in the U.K, maybe at Film Theatres, so I may get to watch it. Otherwise I may have to wait until it comes out on DVD. Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention.
